Movie review: ‘Black Mass’

Whitey Bulger is not the average gangster, so it’s fitting that “Black Mass” is not an average gangster film.

‘Son of Rogues Gallery’ review

Sometimes, an idea comes along so gleefully insane that its sheer absurdity justifies its existence. So when I learned of a two-disc collection of “pirate ballads, sea songs & chanteys” curated by Johnny Depp and Gore Verbinski, I couldn’t wait to revel in its delirium.

Groundhog Day for all our pop culture needs

Today is Groundhog Day, the day that Punxsutawney Phil comes out from his hole and decides whether or not we are going to have six more weeks of winter.

Johnny Depp’s character, the chameleon Rango, is a thespian without an audience, and that’s not a reflection of his acting skills. He just happens to be stuck in a terrarium with a palm tree and a wind-up goldfish. But he doesn’t let his circumstances deter him from working on his craft.

Johnny Depp, Abigail Breslin and Gore Verbinski discuss ‘Rango’

Cadenza got to participate in a press conference with the director of “Rango,” Gore Verbinski, and the film’s stars, Johnny Depp and Abigail Breslin. Depp and Verbinski explained how the computer-animated western had its roots in live-action and he discussed how Depp felt when he pretended to be a “six-foot lizard.” Look forward to a full review on Friday.

‘Alice in Wonderland’

Underland, oh Underland. Yes you read that right. Apparently young Alice had some hearing issues. What, oh what happened to you? Having watched enough book adaptations and read both of Carroll’s books, I went into the movie not expecting a word-for-word interpretation of either book. The movie takes an 18 year-old Alice and follows her return to Wonderland.
